2. Cubitts Hampstead

Cubitts Hampstead is perched on a corner in the leafy London village of Hampstead. The practice embraces the artistic history of the liberal enclave from the Hampstead Modernists - including Barbara Hepworth, Piet Mondrian, and Henry Moore.

The practice contains a dedicated bespoke room, including a bureau inspired by an original desk from 2 Willow Road, alongside former Bauhauser and Hampstead resident Marcel Breuer’s ‘Cesca’ chairs, ‘Isokon Long Chair’ and stools.

Cubitts’ mission is to disrupt and improve the three century-old industry which is not fit for purpose. They say the industry has become uninspiring, filled with badly made and fitted frames - and they think it doesn't need to be that way. Cubitts offer a perfectly fitting, well-made, and well-chosen pair of spectacles as standard. They think this is a right, not a privilege.

All stores offer a 2 year warranty, repairs and reglazes, and extended eye exams at all stores. Cubitts are recommended by 9.5 people out of 10, and they promise to work hard on the other 0.5%.

Questions to Ask When Choosing a New Dentist

When choosing a dentist, you must take your time and consider your options rather than settling for the practice closest to your location.

To prevent settling for a substandard surgery, you should assess various factors, including staff qualifications, cleanliness, and equipment. When considering a dentist, you should ask the following:

  • What are their credentials? What additional training has been undertaken? Are the staff undergoing continued learning?
  • Do they use up-to-date technology and equipment?
  • Does the surgery appear clean and hygienic? Do the staff wear gloves and protective gear when conducting treatment?
  • What are the opening hours?
  • Do they offer emergency appointments?
  • Do they cater to nervous patients?
  • Do they have good reviews on Google?
  • Do they cater to NHS and Private patients?

Remember, it is recommended not to choose a dentist solely because it is close to you, one person has recommended it, or because it seems inexpensive. Take the time to assess practices, so you can be confident you have picked a dental surgery that genuinely cares for your oral and overall health.
